Developers dive to business context. How and, especially, why business analyst need to do this


Often, outsource development teams are separated from the business of a customer. 
People are jumping from one project to other, just closing tasks in a tracker, caring little about sense of what they are doing and value of their work.

In small and simple projects that are really not so important, but if that's a long project in the complex business domain, business context deep dive for developers can provide solution of solid increasing in quality and value for the customer. And sometimes even save the project from failure.

In my presentation, we will talk about issues that project can suffer without such business dive, how we can do this as analysts and what benefits the project can obtain from such dive and why the business analyst only can do this.

Analysts horde. How to capture stakeholder's "Kozelsk" without casualties


Sometimes, there is only one analyst on the project. Sometimes a couple.

But what if we have ten of them, working for the same project?

Usual approaches for stakeholders and requirements management are not effective anymore. Best case scenario, they would be far less useful, but in reality, they can be even harmful to your project.

In my talk, we will review the work approach of such teams, processes that can reduce the chaos and establish collaboration with the development and other team members.

Also we will discuss the real-life issues that can arise inside such teams, for example:

  • new analyst onboarding;
  • knowledge transfer and management;
  • stakeholder as a bottleneck;
  • crossing the boundaries of the work of different analysts.

And we'll try to resolve them.
